My September Week 5 shipping notice came on Tuesday, 11/10.  It left PA at 12:43 pm yesterday, and still hasn't arrived anywhere.......  Tracking shows it will be here tomorrow, 11/18. 

I had an eBay item do the same thing.  The seller finally went down to the post office and they found the package in a rolling cart that had been pushed over with the empty ones.

As Newman stated, "Too many people got their mail. Close to 80%. Nobody's ever cracked the 50% barrier."

Also noticed #15 - Forest Flakes - is not shown in the gallery.

And for the guest artist: Amongus Beans - is that a spoof on a generic package of jelly beans (Think back to Decay toothpaste in original Wacky Packages sticker series 11)?

I noticed that also.  That's not a well executed wacky.

Nope, these are for real beans - mung beans. Brand is UK based.

The parody (which, incidentally, looks PhotoShopped like Charles Barnard's creations) is also centered around an online game, Among Us, (that I never heard of until now when I did some digging.)

Anyone else have really bizarre results with October week 1 or 2? In October, I started ordering 11 sets rather than 10 in the hopes of needing to scrounge for less coupons. That strategy worked well for week 1. I received all 5 different ludlows and all 5 different coupons with one extra. But i paid for my luck with week 2. Nine ludlows and didn't even get all 5 different ones. Only two coupons.
Jeez!

damn, that sucks!

I'm still waiting on several week's worth all at once, as FedEx handed them off to USPS, even though they are supposed to be Ground Delivery by FedEx. Someone really screwed up on a boatload of shipments recently. Topps? Fedex? not sure.

I would love to comment on what I received in October weeks 1 and 2 but my sets still haven't arrived.  To get to PA, they've gone from FL to GA to MD and have now been stuck in WV for days.  Sure makes trading for or buying missing cards tough when you don't know what you have or need :(

I've seen that before!  I'm in MD and yours are probably stuck in the same loop as some of my weekly sets were. Hagerstown, MD and Martinsburg, WV. 

You get them...............eventually  :^)

Who bought 10 sets and was unlucky enough to get  TEN Oct #9 ludlow marathings?  ;D

(NOTE: Sorry, it wasn't ME!!!!! Was being sarcastic)

If one looks in the trading post thread, everybody needs that card.


It defies the odds......

I bought one set and got the Marathings coupon but no ludlows.

It does seem like FedEx is having significant issues. Finally received a staus today, estimating I wonít receive October week 3 until next Monday.
Same status as my order for Halloween postcards, next Monday - which is frustrating. My HP order was in two pieces and I received the sets sent via USPS today! Whatís the dang holdup with fedex?

My October Weeks 3 and 4 sets arrived today by USPS.  Infinitely better than FedEx!  My Halloween postcards came this way, too.  So, all I'm waiting for now is November and Old School.  I sure hope they ship Old School with USPS!!

Sadly, both of my October Week 3 sets have Guest Artist cards, so I'm looking for a Wonky.  Off to the trading section!!
